Memory Box Pine Wreath and Snowberry Sprigs Card, Meadowtree Frame and Countryside Fence Frame Flip Card…

Hi everyone! I meant to get cards posted on Saturday and here it is Tuesday already!  I’m just going to put these two in one post.

I saw the ‘wreath’ challenge at CAS Christmas Card Challenge and had to play along!

I die cut one of the Memory Box Stitched Square Layers dies in a 4.25 x 5.5 inch panel of Neenah Solar White 110# cardstock, then embossed the next larger square die by running it through the Big Shot with the tan embossing mat (link below).  I use the multi purpose platform and take away the first layer to do the embossing.

I colored a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock with 3 different green Copic Sketch markers and then die cut the NEW Pine Wreath die (4 branches) on each color.  Then I die cut one of the NEW Snowberry Sprigs die in Solar White and colored the berries red and the stem brown with Copic Sketch markers too.

Use a 1.6 inch circle frame from the Memory Box Stitched Circles dies for the wreath base, then adhere the pine branches onto the base.

Then I cut the NEW Snowberry Sprig into little sprigs and just glued them in, here and there very randomly.  Fun! Christmas is a time for greens and berries for sure! Glad Tidings is from the NEW Typewriter Holiday Sentiments stamp set.

The Merry Christmas Challenge – anything Christmas

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge – pop it up (3d mounting tape)

The swap for stamp club Friday was a card with a different fold… so I made this next card at the last minute!  The pictures aren’t the greatest cuz, last minute loo loo was hurrying!

Here’s the front… I layered up the NEW Meadowtree Frame with the Horse Sleigh Landscape die…cut both in Solar White 110# cardstock and ink blended the sky with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink and spattered on some white ink. I colored the horse and sleigh with a Copic Sketch black marker trimmed it to fit and mounted it to the scene.

When you pull both sides, it flips the square.  I used a Sizzix die to cut the flip part of the card it’s an older one that’s not available anymore #657591.  It’s really easy to make this fold yourself though.  I’ve done it before.  Holler if you want me to find a tutorial for it or draw up the measurements for you. I need to make another one and make a video of it flipping!   There is also a new thin die from Sizzix.  I’ll link up to it below and the square looks like it’s * close to the same size.

I used the NEW Countryside Fence Frame die and the NEW Meadowtree Frame on the flip side.  I ink blended the sky with Chipped Sapphire Regular Distress ink and white ink splatters.

The Seasons Greetings sentiment is from the NEW Be Jolly stamp set and let it snow is from the NEW Snow Much Fun stamp set.

Memory Box Delicate Pine Frame, Pine Forest Frame Masculine Scene Christmas Card…

Hi everyone! I always like to have a few cards ready for Tim to send at Christmas…a touch masculine but still pretty! lol  I need to add some glitter here and there! hehe   At Christmas you can get away with glitter on scene cards for men I think!

Basic card here…die cut everything in white, except the sky piece, I cut it in blue with the older Speckled Background die. (you can always spatter with white ink for the look of snow) Ink the die cuts with Distress Inks and stick it together!  yay! Stitched Hill, NEW Delicate Pine Frame, NEW Pine Forest Frame,  New Pinpoint Snowflake Circle Frame and the sentiment from the NEW Snow Much Fun stamp set.

Now that I’m looking at this in photos, I’m thinking, hmmm… I need to add a scrap of red plaid! lol  Isn’t that the way of it, all done, pictures taken, writing the post and bam…I should’ve.  NO!  I will on the next card! lol

So fun all the things you can do with Memory Box and poppystamps dies.  I have so many cards started.  Fortunately I do finish them eventually!

This is an A2 size top folding card.

Holler if you have any questions.  I haven’t been sleeping the best, makes me feel like I’m forgetting details!

Thank you so much for stopping by and all your encouraging words here and on FB and IG.  I appreciate it so much! ❤

Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember Release Party!

Hi everyone!  Welcome to my blog post for the Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember Party!  You’re invited to join the fun…visit all the blogs linked on the Simon Says Stamp blog HERE!  Click to shop and use your code choice to receive an exclusive gift (several options) with your order!  How awesome is that!!!

I have two cards to share with you today using the NEW exclusive SSS stamp set, Your Greatest Dreams.  I love the variety of scripts used and beautiful quotes and sayings!

I couldn’t resist using this one with the SSS Picture Book Snowman!

When I started looking through my SSS stamp and die sets and saw this cute guy and the snowflakes I thought of Frosty!

I created a background by white heat embossing the Lots of Snowflakes stamp set and inking it with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink and the mini ink blending tool.

I had to give him a heart. lol  I die cut him in white, colored the parts with Copic Sketch markers and edged his body with Tumbled Glass ink also.

 

My next card uses another sentiment from the same new set…

What a good reminder to enjoy every day!  As I’m writing this post it’s storming and raining but it’s too late to go out in the rain!  I’m tired! lol

Here I white heat embossed one of the clouds from the SSS Cloudy Sky’s stamp set multiple times.  Then stamped one of the outline stamps from the same set with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink and die cut them with the coordinating die set.  I masked off the area for the sentiment and using the mini ink blending tool, I blended on Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink over the clouds and Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide ink on the bottom.

Isn’t that a gorgeous script though!  I love it!

A clean and simple card with a powerful sentiment/reminder!

Thank you so much for visiting my party blog post today! Enjoy the rest of the party stops! What fun!

Lawn Fawn Reveal Wheel Die With Inky Impressions Lili’s Chicks Birthday Card…

Hi everyone! I’m getting some birthday cards done for July and early August birthdays!  I know… we’re behind…it’s been a family upheaval Summer here! I wanted to share this card and a couple more tomorrow and then it’s back to Memory Box and poppystamps!  I’m so glad to be getting these cards done though and to the grandkids!  They’ve been troopers!

I love using the Lawn Fawn Reveal Wheel die set. The kids love it too but who wouldn’t!  I haven’t made one for an adult yet but I think they’re fun for kids of all ages!

 

I stamped Inky Impressions stamp Lili’s Chicks on 110# Neenah Solar White cardstock with Memento Black Ink and colored with Copic Sketch Markers.  This card is for our granddaughter Genevieve, we call her Gena.  She loves her chicks, chickens, kittens and dogs!  and her Grandma! haha

It’s been fun to spend some time coloring.  I used to color these images a lot… if you look in the Inky Impressions category over on the sidebar, it’ll take you to some of my other cards from years ago when I was on the Inky Impressions Design Team a couple times.  Some of my favorite cards!

You can find the Inky Impressions images on ebay … their online store isn’t open anymore.

Memory Box Holly Flourish and Peace Circle…

Happy first day of the week to you! I was inspired to make this card for the Muse Christmas Visions Challenge this week!  I loved the inspiration card and I want to make more because it was just that inspiring of a card!  ETA – my card was a star!  Thank you ladies!

Pretty straight forward card… I die cut the Peace Circle in the piece of black cardstock, cut to 5 x 3 ¾.  Then I die cut the Peace Circle and the Holly Flourish out of watercolor paper and painted them with Gansai Tambi watercolors.  I spattered them with the gold paint in the set before piecing it into the card and gluing the holly on top.

I don’t think the bow die is available anymore but I wanted some more gold on it…hopefully you have another die or even a piece of gold ribbon if you want to recreate this card.

Dies I used to make this card….

Holly Flourish and Peace Circle

I taped the black panel to an A2 size piece of gold metallic cardstock.

An extra fun challenge cuz, it’s Christmas themed!

Memory Box Pine Candle Oval Frame…

Hey everyone! I didn’t think I could do this alcohol thing! At stamp club Friday, Linda from club did a demo and we played. This morning I did this by myself!  The ink really spreads on yupo though…I wanted to try little dots of ink…hmmmm… lol  Big dots worked though! lol Butterscotch, Red Pepper, Lettuce and Oregano are the colors I used.  Then a little gold foil.  I just gambled on getting the foil on there.  If any of you know a video you can point me too on getting the foil on there… email it to me.

This is about as artsy as I get! lol

I had the die cut white to begin with, then a friend told me to put gold foil around the flame and I was like, “no way” am I going to get glue near that! lol  So I die cut the Pine Candle Oval Frame die in gold foil cardstock then and glued it over the white ones.  There are two white ones in the stack because I got a smudge on the first one so I had to cut another and glue it on. lol  Oh the trials! haha

Linking my alcohol ink card to some challenges…

CAS Christmas Card Challenge 

This next one is a Distress Oxide background…

A lot of pictures today!  This one, I die cut an oval with the Sudio Oval Layers die set… it matches the size of the Pine Candle Oval Frame die.  Using the mini Ink Blending tools, I inked on the NEW Distress Oxide Ink pad colors, starting at the top with Mustard Seed, then Barn Door (I brought it up and around the Mustard Seed a little, then came back in with Mustard Seed, back and forth a little to get them blended) then Mowed Lawn and Crushed Olive on the buttom!  I was really happy with how the colors blended and worked with this die cut!

I stamped peace on earth on a strip of white cardstock that I inked with Barn Door Oxide and let dry.  Then stamped on it with Archival black ink in the MISTI.

A few little sequins to finish it off… oh wait,  I did spatter it with Barn Door regular Distress ink.  I just swiped a little ink from the pad onto my Tonic craft mat, one spritz of water and a #4 soft paintbrush to spatter it.  TIP: I don’t know about you but spattering seems like an art to me too!!!  grrr  BUT  I think I’m finally on to something with this #4 soft bristle paintbrush!  It works the best of any I’ve tried so far and I’ve tried a lot!   SO don’t give up!  Find a brush that does what you want it to do.  I’m convinced it’s all about the brush!

The white spatters are a spray… I’ll link to it below.  I just poured a little on my craft mat and picked it up with that wonder paintbrush (hehe) and spattered it on.  I probably should’ve heat set my oxide inks first.  I wonder if the white would’ve stayed whiter? SO, the saga continues as to what is what!

p.s. my paintbrush is a #4 US Artquest paintbrush.   I love my US Artquest brushes.  I will look and see if I can find them to link to. (EDA – found them, link below! I love the other brushes in the set too!)

3 Memory Box Wrapped Holly Circle Frame Cards With NEW Holiday Dies!


Hi everyone! I couldn’t decide what card to post first!  So I went with the ‘glam’! lol

Here’s the NEW Wrapped Holly Circle Frame die from Memory Box with the NEW Three Candle Circle die in the center!  There’s several dies in the release that can be used as centers!

I couldn’t resist using the NEW Candlelit SHINE die on the bottom.

TIP: I worked on a 4 ¼ inch x 5 ½ inch panel so I could die cut the SHINE die right in the bottom of the panel.  I left the white letters in the panel, scotched taped them in on the back, that gave me an easy, perfect way to line up the individual letters when I glued the gold glitter die cut letters on top of the white ones!

I used Antique Linen Distress ink and the mini ink blending tool to ‘age’ the edges and around the flame.

Then I glued that panel to the A2 size card base.

I used Mark Richards 3mm red glitter domes for the berries.

 

Next one…I used the same dies but inked the pieces with the NEW Distress Oxide ink colors.

Barn Door on the outer ring and candles.  I did use a Copic R27 to color the outline of the candle so there’d be more contrast.

Mowed Lawn and a little Crushed Olive smooshed on for the Holly Frame.  White and Gold gel pens for the berries and flame.

I die cut a circle with the Circle Basics die set and inked it with Tumbled Glass, then smooshed on a little Peacock Feathers.

Glue the Holly to the circle, then I mounted it with foam mounting tape to the kraft A2 size card base.  The outer ring is glued flat with PVA glue and the pin top Darice glue bottle.

The sentiments are from the NEW Typewriter Holiday Sentiments clear stamp set!  LOVE it!  Inked and stamped with Ranger Archival black ink pad.  Edges inked with Gathered Twigs Distress ink.

 

My 3rd card using this NEW Wrapped Holly Circle Frame die is a 4 ½ inch square card.

This die is so classy die cut in Gold Foil cardstock!  I love it this way.  I embossed the holly circle frame in the teal cardstock, inked it a little with Distress Peacock Feathers ink pad and the mini ink blending tool then glued the gold foil diecut holly circle frame over the embossing.  Hard to capture in a photo but it just tweaks it and gives a feeling of depth.

For the center on this card, I die cut the NEW Pine Tree Deer Collage die in the gold foil/mirror cardstock, then using a matching center size circle from the Circle Basics die set, I die cut the head and antlers of the deer so they’d fit perfectly in the center!  Cool beans! hahahahahaha

The teal square is die cut with the Stitched Square Layers die set and the red square is die cut with the Square Basics die set.

I die cut the NEW Peace Cheshire Script die in gold foil and red cardstock.  I glued them together offsetting just a bit so some of the red would show.

I added some Want 2 Scrap red gemstones here and there on the berries.

The layers were adhered to a 4 ½ inch square card base.

Whew, this was a lot for one post, but I wanted you to see all three at one time. 😀  I’m excited to use all the NEW Holiday release.  I can’t wait to see what everyone else makes too!
